En amont de la Learning Expedition organisée à l'automne 2014, EducPros vous emmène dans la Silicon Valley pour un voyage au cœur des nouvelles technologies appliquées à l'éducation.

Il a d’abord sollicité son école, l’Institut supérieur de technologies avancée, où il fait un BTS d’informatique industrielle. « Mais vu les tracasseries procédurales, j’ai plutôt approché un ancien camarade de classe compatissant, dont les parents disposent d’une salle de réception en bordure de route. » (...) - Le Monde, par Serge Michel, 04/05/2014

The rise of online instruction will upend the economics of higher education

UNIVERSITIES have not changed much since students first gathered in Oxford and Bologna in the 11th century. Teaching has been constrained by technology. Until recently a student needed to be in a lecture hall to hear the professor or around a table to debate with fellow students. Innovation is eliminating those constraints, however, and bringing sweeping change to higher education. (...) - The Economist, Feb 8th 2014

Research shows MOOCs serve haves, not have-nots

Massive open online courses, or MOOCs, represent one of the most momentous – and contentious – changes to higher education in decades. But the debate over the free internet classes has been a conspicuously fact-free zone. So our team at the University of Pennsylvania decided to inject some empiricism into the discussion, write Brandon Alcorn, Gayle Christensen and Ezekiel J Emanuel for New Republic.  (...) , by New Republic via University World News, 24 January 2014 Issue No:304

Will MOOCs help to democratise higher education?

The democratisation of higher education requires widening access to studies that lead to useful qualifications, and giving people more opportunities to select study programmes themselves and easily design their own courses from the rich pool of material freely available, Sir John Daniel told the “Worldviews 2013” conference last week. The question is whether massive open online course, or MOOCs, will help or hinder that process. (...)  - University World News, by Karen MacGregor, 23 June 2013 Issue No:277

La Floride lance les premiers diplômes publics entièrement en ligne

L’année prochaine, les étudiants inscrits dans les universités publiques de cet état pourront obtenir un diplôme sans même aller sur le campus.

 

Petit à petit, les cours en ligne gagnent du terrain aux États-Unis. Contrairement à la France, où ils sont encore souvent perçus comme de vagues expérimentations, les états américains sont de plus en plus nombreux à leur accorder une reconnaissance officielle. Après la Californie ,qui avait partiellement ouvert la porte aux cours en ligne dans les universités d’État, la Floride vient d’annoncer que ses établissements publics proposeront dès la rentrée 2014 des formations diplômantes entièrement en ligne. Une décision avant tout motivée par des raisons économiques. (...) - Le Figaro étudiant, par Quentin Blanc, 30/04/2013

[Vidéo] Des universités européennes en manque de fonds

L'enseignement supérieur européen est dans une mauvaise passe : d'un côté, les étudiants s'estiment victimes de l'austérité, de l'autre, les frais de fonctionnement sont toujours plus élevés. L'Union européenne est en dessous de la moyenne de l'OCDE en matière de financements public et privé des universités et leur dotation est au coeur de la bataille budgétaire au Parlement. Autre tendance : le partage des coûts. De plus en plus d'Etats membres augmentent les droits d'inscription. (...) - The network - euronews, 19/04/2013

Survey finds presidents are skeptical on MOOCs

Survey finds presidents are skeptical on MOOCs | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

It would be easy to think that the leaders of American higher education are all in when it comes to MOOCs. Dozens of colleges and universities -- many of them among the elites -- have rushed to offer massive open online courses. Top foundations back the effort. The American Council on Education has moved quickly to certify some of the courses as credit-worthy. Many other colleges are considering plans to award credit for MOOCs or to use them in instruction.

But it turns out that -- when asked privately -- most presidents don't seem sure at all that MOOCs are going to transform student learning, or reduce costs to students -- two of the claims made by MOOC enthusiasts and an increasing number of politicians and pundits.

The 'avalanche of change' in higher education must be contextualised in terms of the government's broader neoliberal policies

The 'avalanche of change' in higher education must be contextualised in terms of the government's broader neoliberal policies | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

In the extensive debate that has followed RCUK and Hefce announcements that ‘Gold’ open access under an ‘author pays’ system is to be mandated (with a short transition period) for the publication of all publicly-funded research, there has been general agreement that open access is good in principle. All criticisms of the disruptive effects of its hasty and early adoption within the UK are prefaced with a statement that research and scholarship should be readily accessible.(...) - Blog LSE "Impact of Social Sciences", by John Holmwood, March 18, 2013
